With more sophisticated technology thieves out there we need to be even more vigilant on how we store and dispose our data.

Here are just a few tips on how your business can help to maintain data security;

  • Enforce a clear desk policy to help ensure customer details have been safely discarded frequently.

Data security, first and foremost.

It’s safe to assume most businesses will adopt and use Best Practice for the major aspects of their IT. However, what can easily be overlooked is what happens when those IT assets reach end of life or are refreshed. The data erasure process is an essential part of any Quality Assurance system. The responsibility for data erasure will usually pass to the hands of the contractor you engage to take your equipment away.

Due diligence should be carried out on that contractor to record their procedures, methods and disposal paths.Therefore you must consider the journey of your assets through your business, and especially their exit. As a business, you are duty bound to understand this part of the process as much as any other. Even if just a little bit of data is left on a computer drive it is considered a breach.
